300th post

Wow...where does the time go? This is my 300th post.

I wish I could say my 300th post is full of fun and good news, but it isn't. Tonight mom and dad were faced with a hard reality. Samick is really sick. We don't know how much longer we will have him with us. Tonight we noticed drips of blood on our floors. Samick is now bleeding a little as he pees. This is to be expected and part of the course since he has a mass in his urinary bladder. Samick is also starting to sleep a lot more. Momma cried a lot tonight. I tried to sit by her to tell her it was going to be okay. We are just enjoying as much time as we can with our brother.

Please send good thoughts to my family as we try to cope with what is going on with my brother Samick. He is a good boy and mom keeps saying she can't sit by and watch him suffer and just wants to know when is the right time to help Samick out. She doesn't want to be selfish and also doesn't want to rush it...such a hard decision to make.



  1. Our prayers are with your family and Samick.
    Having a pet get sick due to old age is heartbreaking.
    Our thoughts will be with you always no matter what decision you make. Remember that he had a great life with you all ok?

  2. You're all in our thoughts my friend. What a sad story.

  3. Oh Sagira - so sorry to hear such sad news about Samick. It is a terribly difficult decision to make and we know you will do what is right - we'll be thinking about you and your mom and dad! Hugs to you all....

  4. Oh Sagira and mom
    how sad. Samick looks like a sweet sweet soul. I'm thinking about you! Our hearts are with you.

  16. We are so thinking of all of you. It is so difficult to know how to help our aging canine friends, but your mom will make the right decision at the right time and Samick will be forever grateful.

  18. What sad news about Samick! Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Give Samick a kiss from all of us!
    Congrats on your 300th post!

  19. You guys . . . I'm speechless now.
    Shoot, I came to say that I've read every and each one of your comments and that I find it awfully sweet of you to keep leaving them when I appear to be MIA. I'm so busy, my friends. So, I couldn't take it any longer and chose today to pay my looong overdue visit.
    You had told me about Samick and you were concerned. I'll keep my paws and toes crossed for him, and I will wish you all my best and hope for the best. I know we've spoken about our situation over here with Linguini. We EMpathize.
    Of course I can't leave without a bow. Congratulations on your 300th post. I'll try to be a better friend and visit way more frequently at least until my friend is feeling better.

  20. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Kisses and hugs
    Lorenza and mom

  21. I am so sorry to hear that Samick is getting worse. *many prayers of strength and healing*
    I hope you all have more good days with him...

  22. 300 posts - wow! What an incredible milestone - Congratulations!

    We're sending tons of hugs, love, and prayers to Samick. I'm sure these are difficult days. Try to remember all the great times you've all had together. Whether two legs or four, we bring lots of joy and love into each others' lives!

  23. A very bittersweet post:( We are so happy for your 300 posts and all the ones we have read have been so wonderful. Our hearts go out to your family for poor Samick. It is very hard to see them go downhill. The tears will come, but he knows how much you all love him. Hugs to all of you.

  24. Oh, Sagira. I'm happy for your 300th post. But I'm so sorry about your brother Samick. He looks like such a sweet, good boy. And I know this has to be hard on your whole family. Please give your momma extra snuggles and luv, cuz she really needs it right now. We are thinking of you all and holding you close to our hearts.

    Gentle Wiggles & Wags,

  25. Poor Samick. You are in our thoughts. So hard when these wonderful dogs that we love so much get old and sick. You will know when it is time to say goodbye. Hugs to all of you.

  26. Part of being a member of this community is sharing..even the sad news. We are so glad you have been here through all the adventures and triumphs and tears and we thank you for staying with it to reach this milestone. Samick is a brave boy who is fighting very hard. Your momma and family are very special to understand his needs and to allow him the dignity to decide when it is time. It is hard to know the ending but please, all of you, make these days also joyful days of remembering and loving. Because the pain will eventually heal in your hearts and the goodness and memories will grow into a secret garden. Peace to Samick.

  27. I'm sorry to hear that Samick is so sick. We are thinking of all of you.
